Real-Time Strategy Computer Games

March 16, 2011 Comments off

In the world of computer gaming, real-time strategy (RTS) refers to a type of game in which the player controls movable units and buildings with the intent of controlling a map and eliminating an opponent’s army. Although the genre existed as early as the 1980s, RTS truly grew to prominence in the late 1990s with the rise of game developer Blizzard Entertainment. Here is a list of some of the most famous RTS titles in recent years.

Starcraft: Released in 1998, Starcraft is considered by many to be the seminal title in the modern RTS genre. In the game, players control one of three races fighting to dominate the far reaches of the Milky Way. The Terrans, human exiles from Earth, are highly resourceful and capable of adapting to many unique situations. The insect-like Zerg genetically assimilate other races and produce large numbers of weaker units for use in combat. By far the most technologically advanced of the three races, the Protoss rely on expensive and powerful units in battle. Players gather resources to build armies and achieve technological advances while attempting to eliminate their opponent. Starcraft is one of the best-selling computer games of all time, having sold 11 million copies as of February 2009.

Warcraft III: This RTS title, released in 2002, built on the success of Starcraft four years before. Players control one of four races (Humans, Orcs, Night Elves, and the Undead), and they use special hero units to augment their armies. By including the hero unit, Blizzard Entertainment combined elements of traditional RTS games and more character-centered RPG (role-playing game) titles such as Diablo and the Final Fantasy series.

Starcraft II: The long-awaited sequel to the hit game Starcraft, Starcraft II first hit stores in July 2010. The game retains many of the same features as the original and includes a host of new units and buildings. Starcraft II also operates on a fully 3D engine and contains impressive graphics compared to the original. In just the first month after its release, Starcraft II sold more than 3 million copies.

Craig William Taylor Workbench (c)

In 2003 Craig William Taylor designed and built a woodworking workbench while living in Vacaville, California.  Craig William Taylor’s design included using two 4 foot by 8 foot sheets of plywood that sandwiched a checkerboard style box of wood (see image 1).  This design created rigidity that made for a very solid bench for woodworking activity.  Craig William Taylor also designed the bench to fold up against a shop wall to enable utilizing the work space to park cars (see images 2 & 3).  Although the completed bench weighs a bit; a strong male can easily lift it to the wall pivoting the bench on its hinges and secure it to the wall using snap clips.

In 2010 Craig William Taylor moved the bench from his workshop in Vacaville, California to his new workshop in Granite Bay, California.  Craig Taylor was able to easily install the workbench in the new workshop by cutting and fitting new legs to meet the slop of the concrete.
